“This book gives every nurse or potential nurse a picture of possibility and a vision for a satisfying and sustainable career.”-Jan Jones-Schenk, DHSc, RN, NE-BC From the Foreword Written and designed for RN to MSN students, Transitioning From RN to MSN focuses on the multitude of master’s-prepared roles available to a transitioning student, both as a nurse practitioner and beyond. This text delves into the role of MSNs as change managers in whatever career path they pursue. Nursing is a diverse, intellectually challenging, socially relevant, and personally gratifying career, but for new MSNs, the sheer number of specialties, in settings ranging from hospitals to clinics to homes, can be overwhelming. Transitioning From RN to MSN examines both direct care roles (e.g., clinical nurse leader, nurse educator) and indirect care roles (e.g., public health nurse, informaticist, clinical researcher, coordinator, nurse administrator), as well as emerging areas. Step by step, chapters address the key concepts of role transition including preparation for a particular role, as well as ethical practice, theory application, quality control, and terminal degree options. Each career discussion features required competencies and information new MSNs will find invaluable, all within a consistent format to aid comparison. Chapter objectives, critical-thinking questions, and case studies engage students with the information presented and facilitate comprehension. Key Features: Written specifically as a core text for required courses in RN-to-MSN programs Addresses in depth the requisite competencies for role transition Incorporates AACN, NLN, IOM, and QSEN competencies throughout Describes a great variety of MSN role options in addition to APN roles Includes chapter objectives, abundant case studies and critical thinking questions Provides instructor’s ancillaries, including an instructor’s manual and PowerPoint slides
